A Promising Recital

Typically Schubert lieder recitals are not much to get excited about, as they tend to feature the same dozen songs dutifully performed with appropriately pasted-on effects. Elizabeth Watts offers us a challenging program, sprinkled here and there with familiar songs, but including many that would surprise even an experienced lieder devotee. Her voice has the coolness of many British singers, but it is also quite radiant and lovely. Her phrasing is generally admirable (although even she is taxed by "Nacht und Träume") and Roger Vignoles provides excellent and sensitive accompaniment. Watts is a lively interpreter as seen in her animated way with songs such as "Die Forelle" and "Die Männer sind méchant" - perhaps not the most spontaneous, but delightful to hear. Her German is quite good, although not quite idiomatic - every now and then there is an odd syllable that intrudes (as in "NACCHHT-violen" in an otherwise beautiful rendition). I look forward to hearing from this artist again!
